Often replicated, but never duplicated. The Ronin jacket that started it all for RSD is now offered in a fully re-imagined version as part of the RS Signature Series. The DNA of this iconic jacket remains, but it’s been bestowed with a whole bevy of worthy new features.
A big improvement in the Ronin RS Signature jacket comes with integrated zippered ventilation, with intake vents at the shoulder and exhaust vents at the back. Previous versions of this jacket featured perforated inside arm panels, which were great for airflow but came at a sacrifice in both strength (perforated isn’t as inherently strong as solid leather) and versatility (because the ventilated panels couldn’t be closed for cooler weather riding).
Sundry other welcome features abound, such as an internal zippered waterproof pocket bag sewn inside all new RSD leathers. And gone is the gold lamé looking liner, replaced with a mesh interior that'll encourage airflow (especially with the new venting scheme) and help wick away sweat.
The jacket now comes in a hand washed, hand waxed and hand finished leather that gives it a pre-worn look and feel without sacrificing the strength and integrity of the jacket. It is soft to the touch and requires very little break in. The leather will age with the rider and develop a natural patina over time. Round it out with quality YKK zippers throughout and premium CE rated Knox-brand Microlock molded armor for comfortable, close-fitting impact protection, and the Ronin Signature offers a whole lot to love.
Armor note: This jacket comes with removable CE certified Knox Microlock armor pre-fitted at the shoulders and elbows, and has an armor-ready pocket for a Knox back protector. We highly recommend picking up the back protector—you can find it here.
